Along the lines Of the "Worst Room" Thread : . #1.... My most surprisingly nice room was at The Palace Station. . Many years ago they had just refurbished some of the top floors. I had a brand new room w/ floor to ceiling windows + a view of mountains + The Rio in the distance. New bed + curtains. The room was cheap, too. I think I was "comp'd" a few nights. . #2.... The Stratosphere Again, I got a newly refurbished room ( several years ago ) Wow ! The bed + spreads were as nice as any of the high end Strip hotels. . I guess "Timing is everything."
